CloudBridge and Repeater Datasheet

  1. 1. Citrix CloudBridge and Branch Repeater Datasheet   CloudBridge and Branch Repeater Accelerates, controls and optimizes applications to all locations—datacenter, branch Key benefits offices, public and private clouds • Accelerates services— desktops, applications and and mobile users multimedia—to branch office and mobile users • Improves the performance of any WAN that exhibits latency, congestion and packet loss Citrix® CloudBridge™ and Branch Repeater™ provide a unified platform that accelerates • Significantly improves applications across public and private networks to provide superior application performance XenDesktop and Citrix® and end user experience. CloudBridge and Branch Repeater offer a broad base of features XenApp™ capacity and performance over WANs including protocol acceleration support, market-leading VDI acceleration for Citrix® XenApp • 2000 appliance accelerates and XenDesktop, secure and optimized between clouds and sophisticated quality of service 5,000 simultaneous XenDesktop (QoS). CloudBridge and Branch Repeater combine these key technologies with extensive sessions • Simplifies IT with integrated bandwidth and application usage reporting for cloud-enabled application optimization. Citrix appliance options to reduce technology optimizes the user experience while giving IT fine-grained control over public and server footprint private network resources. • Enables IT agility with flexible deployment options offered by Available as a virtual or physical appliance, CloudBridge and Branch Repeater provide physical and virtual appliances • Securely extends the deployment choices that help improve the user experience, reduce IT capital and operating enterprise data center network costs by enabling on-demand network resource provisioning. CloudBridge and Branch (L2 or L3) to the public clouds • Accelerates the cloud Repeater evolve network-centric WAN optimization controller (WOC) infrastructure into a connection to maximize service-centric solution. distributed application performance Features HDX™ WAN optimization • Improves XenDesktop and XenApp response time and maximizes network bandwidth utilization by optimizing the flow of WAN traffic to mitigate the effects of distance and impaired networks • Reduces XenDesktop and XenApp bandwidth consumption by applying optimal compression techniques based on traffic characteristics, infrastructure capabilities and network conditions. • Orchestrates with XenDesktop and XenApp to provide intelligent acceleration of the Citrix delivery protocol by sensing and responding to network and traffic conditions • Allows users to define which types of XenDesktop and XenApp workflows receive the highest priority • Stores XenApp streamed applications locally in the branch for rapid delivery. • Synchronizes the application whenever there is an update or a patch available so that branch users always get the latest  
  2. 2. Citrix CloudBridge Datasheet   QoS • Provides intelligent and adaptive mechanisms that not only optimize traffic, but also guarantee QoS and quality of experience (QoE) by enabling network administrators to assess network usage, classify apps and services traffic, control bandwidth consumption using granular L2-L7 policies, monitor network congestion and delays affecting user experience and remediate those problems quickly to minimize support calls • Identifies and prioritizes delivery of virtual desktops and virtual apps to a branch based on user group (e.g., the XenDesktop group), application (published or non-published), branch location and other parameters. Protocol support • Manages TCPand SCPS flows • Accelerates any TCP-based application including file transfers, e-mail, SSL, business applications such as enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management, computer-aided design solutions, data backup and replication • Identifies and accelerates the most widely deployed Microsoft applications that branch and mobile users access, including file sharing (CIFS, SMBv2, signed SMB v1/v2), Exchange® (including encrypted MAPI and Exchange 2010) and SharePoint® (HTTP/HTTPS) • Prioritizes mission-critical traffic by aligning bandwidth utilization with business needs to ensure no change in application performance occurs during periods of severe congestion • Mitigates TCP performance penalties from network latency, congestion and packet loss while simultaneously reducing WAN bandwidth utilization and eliminating redundant traffic Security and data protection • Accelerates encrypted XenDesktop and XenApp traffic (basic, advanced/RC5, SSL), including ICA, and secure web applications while maintaining the highest levels of security • Encrypts disk compression history using AES-256 to help prevent theft of sensitive data and support compliance with security mandates and regulations • Interoperates with Citrix NetScaler Gateway™ appliances and the secure access plug-in for Citrix Receiver™ to help optimize all traffic within the secure VPN for remote and mobile users Integrated Windows® services • Natively integrates branch acceleration and optimization with essential branch services (file, print, DHCP, DNS, WINS, AD, DFS) powered by Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 R2 • Allows IT to securely deploy an Active Directory® database at branch offices using a read-only domain controller • Acts as a streaming server for Microsoft® App-V and a secondary site for Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager, thus eliminating the need for dedicated servers • Includes a management pack for Microsoft® System Center Operations Manager 2007 and supports Windows management instrumentation to leverage existing server management tools and expertise Flexible and centralized management • Enables network administrators and operations teams to easily control the entire CloudBridge infrastructure from a single, unified console • Offers simple configuration, replication and software upgrades across multiple appliances. • Provides multiple conduits for day-to-day operation including a web-based GUI and a scriptable command line interface • Generates real-time and historical reports to help gain a comprehensive understanding of system-wide performance gains, as well as alarm and activity information through the built-in GUI, logs, syslog and SNMP traps • Centralized licensing enables network administrators to deploy, manage and consume licenses from a central Citrix license server, simplifying branch deployments Plug-and-play for any network • Automatically discovers remote peer appliances and includes application service profiles to help you instantly identify and optimize common enterprise traffic • Preserves full TCP/IP headers, VLAN tags and QoS markings, requiring no changes to existing networking equipment, security devices or traffic monitoring tools • Offers maximum flexibility with a choice of inline, web cache communication protocol or policy-based routing deployment, along with the option to deploy appliance pairs spanning redundant WAN links for high-availability
